Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara
Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara
Remember I mentioned that there are 3 mascaras that I have repurchased in recent years, the first one was revealed, and the second one is a cult favourite — Maybelline The Falsies Mascara.  Truth be told, I'm not here to review the original The Falsies, rather its little sister — Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara* (CA $10.99).
Mascara Monday is an irregular series of reviews about mascaras that are posted on Mondays.  For your information, I have pin straight lashes that don't hold curl properly.  They are also thin and not quite long.
Coming out in the next month or so in North America, The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara is a dual-ended mascara for both your top and bottom lashes.  It promises to "push up and fan out" your upper lashes and "magnify every tiny bottom lash without clump or mess".

On the upper lashes side, it comes with a twisted brush (its twisted-ness is demonstrated above).  For some reasons, I feel that this wand is supposed to be used with the "rolling technique".  So I like to roll the brush outward from the roots of my lashes.  I find that this way I get the most coverage and volume.  To add more length, I would then go back and brush regularly through my lashes till I'm satisfied.

On the lower lashes side, it comes with a thin and long brush.  It's perfect for the bottom lashes because it's such a small brush, it can "find" all the baby lashes that you have.  I also like to use it for the inner corner of the upper lashes because there are some baby lashes there that could use some magnification.

As for the formula, I think both sides have the exact same formula.  Maybelline claims that it is smudge-proof with great hold power.  I have tested this mascara through regular and long days, windy and rainy days.  On one super windy day, my eyes got super watery (I was tearing up) and it does smudge because I do have the regular formula here.  When weather is nicer, it lasts through the whole working day (8 hours or so), but it starts to smudge when it hits the 9 or 10 hour mark, which is not bad at all.

The formula is nice, not too wet, not too dry.  It gives a nice curls, even though I think the formula is a little heavy that my lashes drooped a little when first applied.  But that doesn't bother me, because it also hold curls quite well.  I also like that the shade Blackest Black I have here is really black.  It really makes your lashes show up more.

The best part of the mascara is definite the lower lashes side.  I don't normally wear mascara on my bottom lashes because most things smudge on me, but this doesn't do that (on a regular day anyway).  And holy cow, it makes a huge difference and really does help to achieve the Big Eyes effect!  And let's take a look at how it actually performs (excuse my poor application, it was after work and I was tired).

Overall, I really like this mascara, it definitely lives up to its family name, "The Falsies".  It is quite long-wearing without the smudge mess on a regular day (but on windy or rainy days, you'll need something more waterproof).  It also gives you volumized and length curls, along with those defined and magnified lower lashes.  For more watery eyes, I would recommend to check out the waterproof version when it becomes available.

On another note, I know this is super belated (and probably shouldn't be called Mascara Monday), but what the heck.  It's originally planned to go up on Monday though, so it still counts, right?  Oh, and doesn't this mascara reminds you the discontinued Maybelline XXL Volume Mascara and Lash Discovery Mascara?

  3. That's amazing! I love my mascaras with a huge brush, but I also wear mascara on my bottom lashes everyday, which means I usually need a different mascara for the bottom lashes. I've been loving the original Falsies too, so I will be getting this as soon as it hits the shelves. Do you know when they're coming out in Canada? *excited face*

  12. I saw this today! I was intrigued but then I remembered that I don't have any bottom lashes - well, I do, but they are so messed up that I don't even bother (short, all of them goes sideways, a bald spot in there - the most annoying thing ever) lol sorry about my lower lash rant.. just jealous that your lashes look amazing ! :)

  13. This looks great on you. Love the review.

  14. Need to try this! I used to have a double ended mascara from AVON and it was amazing! It's so smart to do a mascara with a wand for bottom lashes too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. lol... It "discover" your lashes... even those invisible ones! I actually like to use the lower lashes side to "find" the baby lashes on the upper lash line too!

    ReplyDelete
  16. You do! You need to! hahaha... The last double ended one I tried, I think, is the Maybelline XXL one. It's a different concept though. I really like the lower lashes wand, it's good for all baby lashes :)
